Obviously this could be implemented by adding the extra functionallity to ENIGMA, but will any sort of shader effects (3.0 or such) have official support from ENIGMA for easy use for developers? Such as the XNA's shaders?

Yes, they will. I asked Retep a while back to research the difference in shader languages for DirectX and OPenGL. He never got back to me with the results. I want to ensure that ENIGMA's shader language is standard, and so I want to know what I'm up against. ENIGMA may implement its own shader language.

I assumed DirectX wasn't a factor as OpenGL was multi-Plat, whereas DirectX isn't. (Well it is to its trusted shareholders)

DirectX sometimes works better than OpenGL on Windows because Microsoft is fat and lazy.
